Guilt is a destructive emotion.
It diverts energy from doing positive things. It taps our energy, but leads us nowhere.
Guilt is feeling bad about things we cannot change, instead of focussing on the things we can change, and feeling good.
So, please, don't feel guilty on my account!
A few friends have told me that they feel guilty for not having written or called sooner....
No one should feel obligated to write or call.
I sent out the emails and set up the blog so that people would know what is happening. It's as simple as that. No response required.
If you want to call or write or whatever, that's fine. I'm always glad to hear from you.
But because you want to. Not because you are feeling guilty.
I don't want anyone wasting any energy feeling bad because of me.
You have better things to do with your time and energy.
So do I.
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
